Financiers are a new dessert for me. These mini cakes are delicious and I need to get more familiar with them. The technique of mixing the batter for these was also a bit different.
First butter was melted then brought to a boil for one minute. I am not sure of the reason for this, to separate the milk solids? Maybe one of the group members can enlighten me. The rest of the ingredients were flour, matcha green tea, sugar, almond flour and 6 egg whites at room temperature. I forgot to bring my egg whites to room temperature but since the dough needed to chill for one hour in the refrigerator I figured it was ok. The matcha green tea was supposed to color these pea-green but the tea I bought some how stayed tea leaves and did not dissolve. But no matter these were still buttery good and I could taste a hint of tea.
I will be making these again and look forward to other financiers in our baking assignments. Now what to do with 6 egg yolks (I never throw anything out) make Dorie’s French Vanilla Ice Cream from Around My French Table of course.
